Two Blue is a study in contrasts. Black/White, male/Female, Novice/Veteran. See Video.
The duo’s members, Karimah and Robert Walsh, even hail from opposite ends of Canada. Yet, they have lots of fertile common ground – both sing in English and French, love to write and perform their music, and share a passion for the Blues. Their music features outstanding singing and playing, and is honest, insightful, spirited and often funny. With one foot rooted in the past and one stepping boldly into the future, this exciting duo embraces Blues traditions in a contemporary way. Two Blue is about great music, character, and the spark of creativity that is the Blues.
Fate recently threw these two talented performers together to form this original blues duo. They went on to compete against Northern Alberta’s finest blues musicians in the Edmonton Blues Society’s “Memphis Bound Blues Challenge”; took home the hardware, and subsequently placed in the semi-finals at the 31st International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
